great rpg but not perfect, Aug. 15 2005
overall i loved this game wich kept me glued to my tv for several hours.
let me give you a list of the pro's and the con's
pro's 1.story is riveting although a bit predictable
2.graphics and music are great
3.battle system is inventive and a lot of fun although you have to rely on luck of the draw a lot wich can be frustrating at times but overall one of the best in the industry.
4.characters and character development is very well done
5.gameplay is great and the flows easily plus you decide how long you want to play by choosing side quests or not wich dont affect the outcome but makes it all more challenging.
6.not to many complicated puzzles just enough to keep it interesting knida like tales of symphonia.
7.fun for the whole family something in it for everybody no matter age or gender.
now for the con's.
1.voice acting is below average
2.ennemy roster is small and very repetitive and becomes unchallenging and predictable after a while, especially since the same monsters return when you come back to any screen wich can be very monotonus.Even bosses that you have disposed of keep coming back wich shows a lack of creativity in the game.
3.some sidequests are extremely difficult and time consuming considering the rewards most of them are just not worth the time as far as im concerned.Plus i found that they did not give me enough info to complete them and i finished the game without finishing all of them because i couldn't figure it out.The actual storyline of the game is easier than the sidequests.
4.i had to waste a lot of time powering up my characters wich because of the above mentionned reasons can be long and very boring and unrealistic.
5.you are forced into fights that you dont want because the ennemys are always in the way and keep coming back even after you beat them in the exact spot to boot.
6.cannot buy key weapons and items anywhere or for any amount of money wich is a pity.
7.you cannot purchase or get info that you need to complete certain tasks wich for beginners or intermediate will make the game less enjoyable
8.the world map is too small and too simple compared to most rpg
9.finally the ending is kinda not what you expect.Wich i guess for some thats a good thing.
thats it thank you for reading my revue and i hope it helped you to make an educated decision about buying this game wich i thouroughly enjoyed myself despite it's few flaws.
have a good day
